Can someone please share the eBay link? Can't seem to find it....
That would be because it never sold on eBay. It sold at a Heritage
Signature Auction #330 at Long Beach in September, 2003.https://coins.ha.com/itm/errors/und...ot=1&x=0&y=0
I think I saw this also in one of Mike Byers
rare coin issue
That would not surprise me, he bought the Two Cent
brockage I wanted for around $15K and has listed it for well over $100K ever since he got it. He does have the best errors around though. The only other dealer I know that specializes in these is Mike Sullivan Numismatics,https://www.sullivannumismatics.com/mint-error
Mike always has nice stuff when I run into him at the various coin shows on the circuit (pre-Covid of course). Fred Weinberg used to handle these often, but more I've seen him dealing in the more modern errors instead of classic coinage. Occasionally Rick Snow at http://www.indiancent.com
will have some neat errors.
The biggest brockage I've ever seen was at the Denver Mint, and the Director was using it as a paperweight on his desk, it can never leave the facility. It was made of cents and probably was around 120 coins thick and spread out like cup with splits on the side, easily over 100 coins were in the stack, I got to hold it but not weigh it. Actually it wasn't a simple brockage but was multiple errors, like off-center, multi struck, fused brockage, flip over strikes, etc.
